Same here. I live in NYC and all I see is kids with PSP's on the subways . Those who don't have a PSP have an IPOD.

(mostly because of my age group) but it's definitely getting more and more popular. They've sold what, 24 million so far? God of War and FF7 are definitely going to move a LOT of units when they're released.

I don't think the PSP can ever replace the DS when it comes to overall sales (unless they pull off a miracle) but it will definitely gain more popularity over the next few months. You can do much more on the PSP than the DS and people are slowly realizing that, especially the PS3 connectivity feature. I actually use my PSP as a walkman.

the remote-play functionality. Instead of buying a bigass memory stick for my PSP, I can just remote play videos off my system (and store a lot more than I ever could on the handheld). I can't wait for the 2.00 firmware update, which supposedly allows for Remote Play connectivity from anywhere in the world.

You already can from anywhere in the world...

Well the PSP conects to two systems, PS3 and 360. I personaly love hooking my PSP up to my 360 and watching videos or streaming the music off of it while I play games. I like my DS as well but it really needs to work on its online functionality for games.
